An energetic second round of the Border Circuit Racing Championships will take place on Saturday March 30 at the East London Grand Prix track and promises to be great action for fans.

The season started with three winners in three races among the Border saloon cars.

Class A men Johan van der Westhuizen (Hi-Way Motors Camaro) and Bevan Schwartz (Corvette) found took revenge over opening race winner Class B man Shaun Gradwell’s BMW.

Expect these Chevy men to want a top class clean sweep this weekend.

Gradwell never had it all his own way in Class B either and he will once again have Francwa Coetzer’s Stutt Garage Opel Tigra and Dean Ball’s BMW to deal with.

Quinton Lessing in a Treadz Tyres Mitsubishi, Port Elizabeth lad Philip Wiese (BMW) and Chris Farley are the Class C frontrunners, while Richard Clarke is the man to beat in his Class D Motor 1 Honda Civic with Cameron Hall (Champion Motors BMW) and Nick Naude running interference.

Brady de Kock, Craig Borges (Budget Kitchens Kadett), Brady Choudree (The Doctor Golf) and Cherne Marais (GB Fitment Golf) will fight over Class E, and Class F will see Allan Hurn (Golf) taking on Sharnell Holmes (Selego Golf).

Border Motorsport is the proud home to a stunning historic racing series boasting some of the finest classic racing cars in the country.

and The day’s racing will see more of the same as no less than four iconic Ford Capri Perana V8s take to the track as when Darron and Alec Gudmanz, Danian Staffen and Derek John Boy prepare to race Mike Forsyth’s Cobra.

Tiny Botha’s rapid Ford Escort is a Class B favourite, and Johan van der Westhuizen’s massive Ford Fairlane and Matthew Gudmanz’s Datsun are set to continue their David and Goliath act in Class C.

Graham Lessing and Carl Fantham’s Escorts will fight over Class D with Andrew Karshagen’s Capri and Kyle Rose’s Anglia takes on the Minis of Quintin Bates and Graeme Must in Class E.

Unlimited rider Jayson Lamb (Kawasaki) is the man to beat in the Border Motorcycle Championship, but Garret Nel and Pierre le Roux will be out to stop him on Saturday.

Travis Warne (Kawasaki) will have a Supersport Pro target on his back that Chris Webster and Bradley Rehse (Yamaha) will be aiming at, while Lodewyk Hattingh starts as the Clubmans’ favourite but will enjoy the attentions of Sazi Petela, John Quinn (Ducati) and Martin Minnie.

One can purchase early bird tickets from the BMSC Office or at the gate on race day.
